Superwinds, Masers, and the Regeneration of the Universe

I will be talking about the contribution of AGB and RSG stars to the interstellar medium. Specifically, I will focus on how we can gain valuable information from radio observations and from modeling their Spectral Energy Distributions. Understanding the contribution of these stars is vital for understanding sources of dust and s process elements in the universe, as well as the origin of material that seeded the creation of our solar system.
